LD powers and things you managed to do
PostPosted: Fri 02 Dec, 2005  Reply with quote

I'm just curious as to what notable abilities people have and how powerful those abilities are.
I consider myself an amateur in the field of lucid dreaming as I've only taken an active interest in it for about 3 or 4 months now.
I have a friend who is much more skilled than me, but some of his stories seem a little far-fetched so i'm just wondering the extent of all of your abilities.
Here's my list and the levels of skill.

Flying: At my best it's Neo-like with me being able to fly into outerspace, at my worst it's about a 2-story max height with me having to flap my arms to gain any altitude.

Conjuring: I can usually conjure anything I want as long as I can't see where I'm causing it to appear, although larger things sometimes pose small troubles. If I'm conjuring a vehicle it helps to make some keys in my pocket first to help with the belief factor. Anything that fits in my pocket i can conjure with nearly 100% accuracy as long as I have a few things in my pocket to mistake for said object with the sense of touch. With an empty pocket I probably only have about a 25% success rate.

Transformation: My skill in this field is nearly non-existent. With the extent of my abilities that I can recall being just a stretch of my arms and legs and this only happened once.

Walking through solid objects: Walls or other solid opaque substances tend to turn into a very viscous goo, which i get stuck in and wake up. Windows usually feel non-existant although if I've just became lucid and am not completely sure of myself they're very difficult. Mirrors surprisingly are easier than windows for me with me unable to recall a single instance when i couldn't make it through. The technique I use with mirrors is to just press my face up against it and it'll slowly squish through and then the rest of me kinda gets sucked in along with it. Usually it's a small layer of thick goo with the destination on the other side, but a few times it's been just like walls which i get stuck in, but then i slowly sink down and fall through the ceiling into a room.

Telekinesis: Very recently I've began to develop this skill, with before last night the extent being me levitating a small object a few inches above my hand once. Last night we were fleeing in a car from something and had left behind some of our friends, I grabbed them from far off and pulled them to the car. (Well i got one of my friends and the other couldn't get, but then saw a hot chick and got her instead wink )

Sharing dream skills with DC: I have alot of success in this area and am very curious if others have tried and/or succeeded. I've actually had dream characters surpass my skills once or twice after me showing them how to do it. (I was making cocaine appear in my pocket, but it'd always turn reddish-orange[guess my subconscious doesn't want me doing coke even in a dream] but the DC's coke stayed normal) Other than that one instance the only ability I've tried to share was flying which they always seem to be able to do just with a very limited height.

Sorry for the super long post. I just figured it'd be more clear if I went into detail rather than simply saying "Skill=High" etc.
But if that's how you'd like to do it I'd still appreciate the insight into all your skills/abilities very much as anything I can't do will certainly inspire me to become more powerful just as my friend has.
Thanks.

Cool post.

I haven't yet flown in my LDs. But I can jump really high and float.

I can conjure things and make thing disappear and reappear. I can control dream characters to a certain extent. I can teleport objects, set fire to things (sometimes I set fire to things when I just want them to disappear).

I can fly, but not too high. When I tested how high, I bumped into the sky, which was like a ceiling. Wierd.
But, I can fly.

"Teleporting", or, just changing the surroundings is pretty easy. I've just tried it once though.

I'm really bad at walking through walls and such. I usually get an arm or something trough, but not the whole body.

I have transformed a lot, mostly into a wolf. When it comes to other animals, I'm not as good. I usually get some of the animals traits, but am mostly human.

Well, in normal dreams I can do just about anything. In lucid dreams, I've only done two things, however - flying and walking through a wall. The flying was easy - no problems there except I had a tendency to do it indoors and bump up against the ceiling. I don't know what the limits were, if any, because I wasn't interested in finding them. Walking through the wall took a couple of tries (I wouldn't have tried at all except that the door was locked at the time), but all it took was persistence to get it to work.

I remember the latter particularly well, because it was something I'd done many times in normal dreams, but in the lucid dream it was very different. It felt like I was literally squeezing myself through something solid, and fairly cold. And I had to go in sideways. But I got there in the end. Actually, I think I prefer that way of going through walls as compared to the quick phase I normally do, because it feels more "realistic" somehow.

Oh yes, and I made a room spin around me while I was flying once, but I was feeling a little dizzy at the time, so that might be why. I hadn't really been intending to make that happen, but I did.

Those are the only powers I've had in lucid dreams, but I've made up a list of all the ones I've had in normal dreams, too, and how often they occur. I won't write them all here, but the list is in my dream journal if you're interested.

I'm really good at telekenises in my dreams, I guess since I can do it in real life. I could actually levitate myself, and lift shoes, and cars, and all that crap. It's pretty cool, and everything else, I'm poor in. kiekeboe

But hey I've done most of them before, except the walking through solid objects, and makeing DC's do stuff.


Now this is my few on powers

It's much like real life, if you have a motive, or adrenaline, it is actually easier, and really powerful. I've lifted a mountain to save my dad. In other cases I've only been able to lift cars.

Current LD goal(s): I want to get better DR and have LDs again..it's been so long!

I myself can fly, and am pretty good with the wandwork. (Harry Potter style, yes. Big deal. Wanna fight about it?)

Flying: just like you.

Conjuring: rarely tried. I made appear once little magic blue lights by snaping my fingers.

Transformation: I transformed into a wolf and into the Death (very powerful skeleton grin ).

Walking through solid objects: Walls are viscous too. I have to fly on the back without seeing them to go through. shy2 I've no problem to go through windows. The curious thing is I never think I can open them! lachtraan I never could go through a mirror.

Telekinesis: When I was Mr Death, I had terrible telekinetic powers, like Carrie in the movie. A true horror! devil

Sharing dream skills with DC: never tried.

Other powers I've tested are fire-belching like a dragon, teleportation, kung-fu mastering, being invisible, using magic (throwing enregy balls, casting spells to make other people fly or petrifying monsters), climbing like Spiderman, breathing under water, and that's all. But most of the time, I just fly.

On a scale of stars and half-stars (and 0, the black hole), here are my abilities.

Magicking: 41/2 stars. Only failed once.
Conjuring: 5 stars. Only tried once, made a woman.
SD: Never Tried.
Transforming: Might have been tried in the 4 LD's i forgot.
EDIT: I Have had an incredible Transformation into a Dragon-Creature! I was called Dragonosiss!
Flying: Always been indoors in my room.


So basically, i need better dream recall before i can fill in any more.

Flying- Can only get a tiny bit off the ground, more like moon jumping. (that's what I call it anyway) An elderly man helped me once and I've made progress from there. bounce

Walking through walls- Never tried.

Magicking something up- I've gotten my hand to turn into a phone and materialized a candy Peep out of thin air. If I try using my will instead of yelling for something to happen, I'm able to make things pop out of thin air. (like a trash can for example)

Transforming- I've become a sabor tooth tiger in a LD once, though I thought I was a cheetah at first. Pretty neat actually, I got all these instincts and stuff...

Having power over DCs- Never really tried, other than saying out loud that I wanted them to leave or do something.

Shared Dreaming- Kev (Counter_Terminator) and I have started this project, so I'll report back if there's any success. siiw

I'm not sure of what you understood. shy2 Masterofdementia was not speaking about shared dreaming, but about sharing powers with DC's.

I love to have super powers in lucid dreams..

Flying: I'm okay with. Mostly gliding over the ground.

Superfast: This I'm good at. I can run super fast or move really fast. That's loads of fun.

Energy Rays: Yes, I'm pround of my energy rays so . They are light bluish lavender rays that shoot from the palm of my hands.

I don't recall walking into walls. But I have been invisible. Yes! that was fun.

That's about it... I think. This topic makes me want to have another one.

I can do somethings pretty well in my dreams but i mostly just want to do "That Thing And all you Ld'ers know what I mean LOL! devil but here we go

Flying: It took me 2 lucid dreams before I could even get off the ground

Conjuring: I have a hard time with this so I usually turn around and hope for it to be behind my back because that seem to make my chances better .

Projectiles: This one came easy I am made my hand into a gun and went BOOM BOOM and easily killed the "baddies" I had to really try to make fireballs and wasnt very happy (still practicing)because it looked like an orange tennis ball.

Transforming: If I just think about the animal and start acting like it I can easily transform but I also only tried this in my later LD's where i knew how to accomplish such tasks.

Walking through Walls: This one made me so mad I was trying to fly through a door because I didnt want to have to land and open it (me being lazy) but I hurt myself by repeatedly ramming into the small stained glass portion of the door (which strangly did'nt break)

Telekinesis: This is easily one of my favorite things to do! It took me a couple tries but now I honestly feel like a pro (sorry modesty aint my thing) sadblauw spinning
